    Sanity prevails in ICC Board

    A couple of months after the ICC Cricket Committee voted, by the narrowest of margins, to propose that players could appeal umpiring decisions, the ICC's Board rejected the proposal yesterday.

    The original recommendation empowered teams to have a maximum of three appeals per innings. Players on the field would use up the appeals if they felt a decision by the on-field umpire(s) had gone against them. If the decision was revoked after review by the TV umpire, the team retained the appeal and the number of appeals in hand would remain intact. However, if the on-field umpire(s) decision was upheld, the team lost that appeal and were left with one less.

    One of the reasons the board rejected the recommendation was reflected in our original post on the issue where we questioned the motive behind using an international event such as the ICC Champions Trophy to experiment rather than try it out in domestic competitions first.

    One of the few times a bunch of administrators, who constitute the ICC Board, got a cricketing issue right when players, who constitute the bulk of the Cricket Committee, obviously got it wrong!
